Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 109: Eagle IPA

An Around The World special edition.

Wells Eagle IPA

Pours a clear, dark reddish amber with a medium-sized head. Some carbonation is visible.

First sip: A lot of hops up front that almost overwhelms the mild malt. Quite an astringent aftertaste and lingering bitterness. A little carbonation fizz on the tongue.

This is a little too bitter with not enough malt. It's nice enough but I'm not real impressed. I suppose it's a good beer for a hot summer's day but not for a cold, wet spring evening.

Not a yummy beer. I am disappointed.
